I wrote the Shanna Show books at the suggestion of Andrea Davis Pinkney, then editor at Hyperion/Jump at the Sun. She asked me to write a preschool series for African American girls. When I visit schools, I often ask kids to sing the Shanna Show song with me. The books are illustrated by the award winning Shane W. Evans.

"Storytelling magic."



Shanna: I'm a doctor.
              Wonder how I know?
              I'll give you 5 clues
              on today's Shanna Show.

              Clue 1: lab coat. Name tag, too.
              When you get your checkups,
              I'll be ready for you.

              What's the matter?
              Let me see.

Shane:  Dinah-saurus bit my knee!
